Baby Breastfed By Vegan Mother Dies
THE HEALTHY HDMI -. - on MARCH BO, 2011
was as is
An ll month old baby exclusively breastfed by
a vegan mother has died and the parents are
charged with neglect after an autopsy
indicated the baby suffered from
in vitamin and Vitamin A - both known to
be critical to a child' s development-
Vegans have long been advised to take
supplements as long term veganism runs the
huge risk of serious as well as
other nutrients only found in animal foods
such as true Vitamin A. Beta carotene is not

all animal foods is a danger to one' s health and most particularly, your baby!
It also sends a clear message that what a breastfeeding Mother eats DOES affect the
quality of her breastmilk. Many breastfeeding advocates insist that breastmilk will include all a baby
needs despite what the Mother eats, but clearly this is not the case.
Traditional cultures took great care to ensure that pregnant and breastfeeding mothers consumed
ample amounts of animal foods rich in vitamins A, D, E, K and of course BIA These foods included
grassier butter, pastured eggs, liver, seafood. and fish eggs- Notice that none - NOT ONE of these
traditionally sacred foods is plant based!

foods for optimal fetal and baby development- These foods will also ensure the preservation of your
own health during pregnancy and lactation which can easily deplete a Mother' s nutritional stores
leaving her vulnerable to exhaustion.
Update: The vegan parents whose baby died as described in this article were convicted
by a French court to ii years in prison due to the imbalanced vegan diet the mother ate
which led to nutrient poor Breastmilk and a failure to thrive child who eventually fell ill
from severe nutrient deficiency and died without the parents ever seeking proper medical
